Where When How Summer 2017 : Page 87

T he December 2007 issue of Dive Training contained an arti-cle, “Beauty and a Beast,” which was the first in any diving publication to delve closely into what was then seen only as an interesting but localized environmental concern. However, some said that it had much broader implications, and might bring on one of, if not the, most significant changes in Atlantic coral reefs since the die-off of black spiny sea urchins in the early 1980s. (For a closer look at the sea urchin die-off, see “Pin Cushions in Paradise” from the September 2004 issue of Dive Training.) Now, thirteen years later, the dire predic-tions could be well on their way to becoming a reality. Visit the Turks & Caicos Islands at SUMMER 2017 • • • • • 87
